Allergy/ intolerance: Top contenders include gluten, dairy, soy, corn, citrus, eggs, beef and peanuts. Processed foods and additives such as aspartame can also trigger reactions. In addition, your body needs beneficial bacteria (probiotics) that actually train the immune system how to respond to allergens. Sometimes people have more than 1 food allergy, so pay close attention. Good luck!

Oral allergy syndrom: Hope i'm answering your question. Oral allergy syndrome occurs in some persons allergic to birch tree &/or ragweed pollen. When eating certain raw fruits & vegetables - apple, carrot, citrus, melon, others - they feel mouth itching & throat tickling without hives, swelling, or more serious symptoms. Eating the same foods cooked? No symptoms. Your allergist can help you sort this problem.
